Daniel had been an off-and-on member to ChristianMingle since 2011. Living in Calaveras County, CA, he’d been on one date with someone else in 2011, but it didn’t work out.
Brandelyn had been a ChristianMingle member since December 2012. She was living in about an hour away from Daniel in Sacramento, CA.
Daniel sent the first message in December 2012. He went by the screen name LoveForChrist. Brandelyn responded and they exchanged a few emails during the next two months. Her screen name was Branalyse7.
In February 2013, the two decided to meet for the very first time at BJ’s Restaurant. Their first date lasted over three hours. It consisted of many conversation topics and much laughter.
Two weeks later they started texting and talking over the phone to learn more about each other. Then, they decided to meet for a second date. Daniel picked Brandelyn up from her apartment to go to On the Border, a Mexican restaurant. It seemed as if they’d known each other for a long time. Everything came so naturally. On their second date, they shared their first kiss.
The two started attending church together at Bayside in Placer County, CA. That is when they knew they really had feelings for each other. Soon after, they decided to make their relationship official.
Over the next two years, they came to know each other very well and grew in Christ together. On December 24, 2014, Christmas Eve, Daniel asked Brandelyn to marry him. She excitedly said “YES!”
Now, on September 4, 2016, the two will be getting married!
“If it wasn’t for ChristianMingle and our belief in God, we would have never found each other. Thank you so much.”
